Today’s episode is going to be slightly different than what you might be used to from us.
We’re always looking for ways to make the podcast better, more fun, and insightful.
Every podcast episode is still actionable but the format might be different every now and then like today’s episode.
We are going to talk about something that has been in the news a LOT this year: what has been called The Great Resignation.
Records keep being broken for people INTENTIONALLY leaving their jobs, often without another job lined up yet.
This is happening in all sectors of the economy; especially in the US, but in many other countries as well.
Stat from The Atlantic: 1 in 14 employees in the “accommodations and food services” sector left a job in a single month.
It’s not just limited to that though!
Companies are offering signing & referral bonuses more than ever before (just ask Brooks’ wife!)
A PwC survey found that 65% of US employees are looking for a new job.
One of the things we like to say at AE is: happy people are productive people!
Whether you’re an employee, manager, or boss – we’ll go over how the Great Resignation impacts you and what you can do about it moving forward to have a happy and productive life.
